Date lodged: 5 December 2017
To ask the Scottish Government when the social security agency Framework Document detailing the delegations to accountable officers will be published.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 19 December 2017
The Framework Document being signed gives effect to the delegations to an agency accountable officer. This process effectively brings the agency into existence. The Framework Document will be signed on the date the first form of assistance begins payment. The Framework Document will be published after this date.
